Percy is beginning to understand that he is different, in a special way. In the middle of the book, Percy is introduced to new beliefs, a change in character, and he starts to develop a new attitude. He learns that he is a half-blood, which explains why he has ADHD and dyslexia, and also explains why he had to transfer schools so frequently. This is shown on page 93. Annabeth, Percy’s new half-blood friend, explains to Percy that most half-bloods move from school to school constantly, and are diagnosed with ADHD and dyslexia. Percy began to finally realize that he wasn’t just some strange kid, who had problems with reading and staying still. He was a half-blood, and there were tons of other kids just like him.
